Sporanox and Lamisil Fungal Nail Pills Are A Short Term Fix

Sporanox and Lamisil Fungal Pills are among the newest advancements in the treatment of nail fungus. Both Lamilisl Pills and Sporanox Pills have been on the market for years and have become a consideration when deciding to treat fungus. The only question is how long do they work for and are they worth the money and health risk's.

Lamisil and Sporonox Pills Lamisil and Sporanox Pills treat fungus by sitting in the nail root, also known as the matrix, and clearing the fungus in the matrix. The nail matrix is where nail matter is produced and as the fungus in the nail matrix is cleared the new nail grows out fungus free. Lamisil and Sporoanox Pills will only temporarily clear the matrix of the nail. The shortcoming for this treatment is after treatment, when the nails are once again suseptable to getting fungus. In other words as soon as the Lamisil or Sporanox medication leaves  your system and the nail matrix, the fungus returns.

Lamisil and Sporanox Fungal Pills: How They Work

  1. Begin Eating Pill
  2. Pills Enters System
  3. Pills Sits in Nail Matrix and Clears Matrix
  4. Nail Begins to Grow Out Clear
  5. Some of Medication is Cleared Through Liver
  6. Medication Leaves System
  7. Fungus May Return to Unprotected Nail and Matrix

Problems with Anti-Fungal Pills

  1. Very Expensive - Cost about $800, may be covered by insurance 
  2. Damage Liver - Perscription is often accompanied by frequent blood tests to ensure that the liver is safe. Doctors recommend that patients do not consume Alcohol or smoke when taking pills
  3. High Chance that Fungus will Return - After treatment the nail matrix is suseptable to contract fungus again

Two new advances in the treatment of nail fungus are nail laser therapy and advanced nail lacquers. Both of these treatments have had excellent outcomes and do not have the risks of liver irritation or damage associated with the fungal pills. The best option we have found is combining the nail laser and lacquer together.

Advantages of Nail Laser:

  • No pain: In office procedure
  • Clears Fungus: Treats both Nail and Matrix to
  • Quick Treatmet: Only One or Two Treatments
  • Does not harm body: liver stays intact

Advantages of Nail Lacquer:

  • No pain 
  • Fairly Inexpensive; Should not cost more than $30 for treatment  
  • Treats both Nail and Matrix 
  • No side effects  
  • Continued Nail protection:Apply lacquer once a week to prevent fungus from returning

The Doctors Recommendation

What I believe is the best treatment option is simple. Use either the pill, if your insurance will cover the costs and and you are okay with the risks of liver irritation. Or use the laser if you can afford it as insurance does not cover it. Whichever treatment option you prefer, make sure to combine a nail lacquer with the treatment and when the nail is clear, use an Anti-fungal nail lacquer that can offer long term protection to prevent the nail from getting re-infected.

Nail lacquer PediMDPediMD Antifungal Nail Treatment System has been designed for this specific purpose. It is an excellent treatment system for nail fungus and can also be combined with anti-fungal pills or fungus laser treatment. PediMD offers a second attack to the nail fungus. The best part is that the nail lacquer helps protect the nail while taking the pills or during laser treatment.
